With a G-rating and amazing reviews already, this movie is sure please kids and AFOL (adult fans of LEGOŽ) alike; reportedly 80 percent of movie-goers on opening day in the US were over 18 years of age*. I, for one, will have a four-year-old and a six-year-old with me; maybe a husband!

From GooglePlus: "This original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGOŽ minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared."
This movie took over 2 years to film, incidentally created here in Australia by a crew of up to 300, at the animation studio and visual effects house Animal Logic in Sydney.
We went with our kids (14 & 16) and thought it was great! Scott did a little bit of over-analyzing on the plot line, but if you're not trying to dig TOO deep (whether there's a liberal agenda), it's funny and entertaining!
